Hi! Great to hear some Canadians online. I am from Canada as well, earned my private in Victoria. Flying in Canada is quite different. I think that many pilots in the busier areas take for granted the services available. We have radar coverage in all the major areas. VOR's within miles (literally) of each other, and for the most part unless you are travelling cross-country, the terrain below is usually well populated. Being that Canada's environment is certainly less forgiving and navigational facilities are limited, it seems obvious that filing is the right thing to do. Just as Jason emphasizes in the podcast, it is in these areas where we are seemingly within reach of help, that it is equally as important to file. Thanks for the comments. I'll look forward to hearing more stories from BC.
